The Last Supper Room

The Last Supper Room is located right above the Tomb of David on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. It is a second story room that symbolizes the “upper room” in which Jesus had his last supper – a Passover meal – with his disciples.

The location of the real room where Jesus had his final meal, also known as coenaculum, is not certain, however this location cannot be the actual room since it was built by the crusaders in the 12th century. It is very likely though that the original room is close - possibly even under the current room. It is certain that in the 2nd century A.D. there was a building in this same spot, as evidenced by the Roman foundation floors.

In the early 16th century the room was turned into a mosque by the Ottomans, and you can still see Arabic writing on the walls as well as other Muslim motifs.

Today, the room is a major Christian and tourist attraction and you are welcome to visit there when you are in Jerusalem.
